Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on Monday night joked at the first presidential debate that she’ll “be blamed for everything” before the night was over.

{mosads}GOP nominee Donald Trump started the awkward exchange by saying that the country has no leadership and placed the blame that the former secretary of State is the root of the cause.

“We have no leadership and honestly that starts with Secretary Clinton,” Trump said.

“I have a feeling by the end of this evening I’ll be blamed for everything that’s ever happened,” Clinton said, laughing.

Trump interjected to the amusement of the crowd, saying “Why not?”

The former secretary of State continued, “Just join the debate by saying more crazy things.”

Trump interrupted her again, saying, “There’s nothing crazy about not letting our companies bring their money back into this country.”

The two candidates wasted no time getting heated in the first of three debates on the road to the Oval Office.
